Question

One cylinder initially has 0.9 kg Argon (Ar) at 75 kPa pressure and 27 C temperature. Argon polytropic P.V 1.3 = is constantly compacted until its volume is half the first volume. What is the job done accordingly?

Answer #1

A cylinder with a moveable piston holds 1.20 mol of argon at a
constant temperature of 295 K. As the gas is compressed
isothermally, its pressure increases from 101 kPa to 145 kPa.
(a) Find the final volume of the gas. (answer in:
m3)
(b) Find the work done by the gas. (answer in: kJ)
(c) Find the heat added to the gas. (.. kJ)

A piston-cylinder device initially contains 75 g of saturated
water vapor at 340 kPa . A resistance heater is operated within the
cylinder with a current of 0.6 A from a 300 V source until the
volume doubles. At the same time a heat loss of 7 kJ occurs.
Part A)Determine the final temperature (T2).
Part B)Determine the duration of the process.
Part C)
What-if scenario: What is the final
temperature if the piston-cylinder device initially contains
saturated liquid water?

A piston cylinder device contains 0.15 kg of air initially at 2
MPa and 350 C. First, the air expands isothermally to a pressure of
500 kPa. Then, it is compressed polytropically back to the initial
pressure (2 MPa) with a polytropic exponent of 1.2. Find the work
performed or introduced by or to the air for each process. Express
it both times in kJ.

A 0.2 m3 piston-cylinder initially contains 400 K air. A heavy
frictionless piston maintains a pressure of 500 kPa abs. Then, a
weakness in the cylinder wall blows out and creates a hole. Air
escapes through the hole until the piston drops far enough to cover
the hole. At that point, the volume is half the initial volume.
During this process, 75 kJ of heat is transferred to the 100 kPa,
300 K surroundings. Using Cp = 1.005 kJ/kg-K and...

A
piston-cylinder device contains 3.2 kg of air at 400 kPa and 10°C.
Heat is transfered to air and the piston is allowed to expand at
constant pressure until its temperature reaches 50°C. The work done
during this expansion process is: Use kj units

1-kg water in a frictionless piston-cylinder device is initially
at 250°C and 300 kPa (state
1). A total of 700 kJ of work is done ON the water
in order to isothermally reduce its volume to
1/20 of its initial volume (state 2). Determine the magnitude and
direction of the heat transfer
involved in this process.
Answer: -1147 kJ.

The volume of 0.850 kg of argon (MW = 40) in a closed
piston-cylinder device is initially 0.500 m3. Now the gas is
expanded at a constant pressure of 165.0 kPa to a volume of 1.30
m3. Note: The IUPAC sign convention for work is used. Work into the
system has a positive value. What is the moving boundary work? kJ
What is the heat interaction? Assume Cp(T)= 21 kJ/kmol·K. kJ

A cylinder contains 1.5 moles of ideal gas, initially at a
temperature of 113 ∘C. The cylinder is provided with a frictionless
piston, which maintains a constant pressure of 6.4×105Pa on the
gas. The gas is cooled until its temperature has decreased to 27∘C.
For the gas CV = 11.65 J/mol⋅K, and the ideal gas
constant R = 8.314 J/mol⋅K.

2.What is the change in the internal (thermal) energy of...

One kg of water in a piston-cylinder assembly
undergoes two processes in series from an initial state where p1 =
0.8 MPa, T1 = 500°C:
Process 1-2: Constant-pressure compression until the
volume is half of
the initial volume.
Process 2-3: Constant-volume cooling until the
pressure drops to 400 kPa.
Sketch the two processes in series on a p-v and T-v
diagram. Determine the work and heat transfer for both
processes.

A piston-cylinder device contains 0.54 kg of steam at 300
degrees C and 3 MPa. Steam is cooled at constant pressure until
